The Lord has promised, "I will refresh the weary and satisfy the faint."
Many Christians living in ongoing situations of discrimination and persecution are weary and faint, worn down by the year-in, year-out struggle to survive and the frustration of the injustices they suffer.
Help them to find strength and hope in God by praying for them, with us, daily.
Join with us daily in praying for the persecuted church around the world.

Two handmade petrol bombs were thrown into the compound of a Christian school in Jakarta on 6 August amid rising tensions as Muslims marked the end of Ramadan, the Islamic month of fasting. The devices were hurled into the grounds over an outer wall by someone on a motorcycle. More than 140,000 police officers were deployed to protect other sensitive targets. Give thanks that no-one was hurt in this incident and that the authorities took the threat of Muslim violence seriously, but pray for protection for Christian buildings in Indonesia, which are easy targets for extremists.
